Vibrant city life and endless adventures

Aberdeen is our sparkling city by the sea and is the happiest city in the UK to live and work in (Shawbrook Bank 2021). It’s an energetic and student-friendly city with buzzing festivals and live music, and an epic foodie scene. Prepare yourself for big adventures and unforgettable experiences.

At RGU we know how important it is, now more than ever, to live an active lifestyle in order to maintain your physical, mental and social wellbeing. To support students to stay active and well, we are delighted to be offering RGU students free membership.

Our sparkling city of Aberdeen, in the North-east of Scotland, is the best place to live in Great Britain (HomeViews 2023).

RGU’s widening participation initiative aims to extend access to learning and enable talented individuals from under-represented groups to achieve their ambitions through higher education whatever their circumstances.
